Problem creating setup project for COM project

I have a C++ COM Addin I wrote for Outlook (2002) using VS.Net 2002. Having
completed it, I am now looking to create a setup project and install it on
another machine.
I created a setup project and added it to my solution (selecting the
"Primary Output" as the files to include from my project). However, when I
attempt to build the setup project (assuming a clean output directory), I
get "Unrecoverable build error" - and NO other information:

------ Build started: Project: Setup, Configuration: Release ------

Building file 'D:\DOTNET\VC++.NET\OutlookAddin\Setup\Release\Set up.msi'...
ERROR: Unrecoverable build error

Looking in the Release directory, I have one file - Setup.tmp (80kb).
If I then try to build it again, I get:

------ Build started: Project: Setup, Configuration: Release ------

Building file 'D:\DOTNET\VC++.NET\OutlookAddin\Setup\Release\Set up.msi'...
WARNING: Cannot remove output file
D:\DOTNET\VC++.NET\OutlookAddin\Setup\Release\Setu p.tmp
ERROR: Unrecoverable build error

So, first of all, any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Second, is this the correct process for creating a setup program for my
addin? IE: Will it include all the necessary registry entires, etc?

Thanks!
